dynamic height

dynamic height

[dī¦nam·ik ′hīt]
(geophysics)
As measured from sea level, the distance above the geoid of points on the same equipotential surface, in terms of linear units measured along a plumb line at a given latitude, generally 45°.
(physics)
The amount of work done when a water particle of unit mass is moved vertically from one level to another. Also known as geodynamic height.

Dynamic height differences are obtained so that a dynamic correction is added to the measured height differences between two bench marks (Hofmann-Wellenhof and Moritz 2005):
The total sum of the corrected values of the measured height differences and dynamic height differences is compared to the known value of height differences calculated from the differences of the known altitudes of bench marks.
Dynamic height sensing is continuous and requires breaking the vacuum line and adding a pressure sensor.
